This 1st floor apartment is fine. The actual landlord Maria (who lives on the second floor) and her husband are really accommodating and try to serve you in every way possible. The place didn't have a coffee maker so we asked for one and they brought us one in a day. They are very nice people.
Even so, I feel the need to give an accurate review since we stayed there for a month and got a good feel of it. It should be noted that the accommodations are older. The fridge and the stove are probably over 30 years old. The oven doesn't stay lit, and the stove was ok. The plates/cups/utensils were in good condition. The pots and pans were beaten and old. We bought new ones to use while we were there because they felt gross. There are two queen sized-typed beds, one is nice, but the other one is in very bad condition (you can feel the springs popping through)! The washer was great and the tvs were good too (cable was nice). The couches were very uncomfortable and older but they worked fine.
The location to me was great because you could walk to the local mall which has department stores/grocery store(Metro)/theater/pharmacies etc. Two other malls are within 5min as well. The city center is about 10-15min. Taxis aren't hard to get (they come pick you up at your house). Internet was available in the living and dining room but no where else really (the internet is shared with the other two floors). You only have hot water if you use the "widow maker" electric water heaters on the showers. No hot water in the kitchen or bathrooms. Less than 20 ft away is a park with kids things and a soccer court. Papa Johns pizza and Norky's chicken delivers to the apartment. Security felt adequate.
The redeeming factor to this place was that the landlord, Maria, was very generous and sweet. She made every effort to accommodate our needs and kept checking to make sure all was well. She returned our full deposit and didn't nickel and dime my friend in her other apartment either. Our other friends who arrived in Arequipa with us stayed at another apartment of Jose Bellido's (not Maria's). At that apartment they nickled and dimed our friends for things our friends did not break). All that to say, make sure you do a thorough inventory of any small cracks, any issues present at all if you want your deposit back from other places. Note: Maria gave us no problems at all.
We asked Maria if we could pay her extra to come pick us up at the airport and she generously waited for us there without any issue and made the transition to the apartment very easily. She was incredibly hospitable. I recommend this place. It is good for the price, it is spacious and the location is more than ideal. Thank you Maria!
Good place, big, confortable, we felt like home. The only cons is that it is a slightly far from the city centre (15 minutes by taxi) as the place is in the suburbs. Peaceful and quiet if you appreciate it.
